Forum: prelinger Subject: Burning DVD with Nero 6.6, get to bitter end of burn and fails

I’m a newbie at this DVD burning thing. I did check the archive threads to see if an answer or clue was there for me to ferret out before posting this message. If anyone reading this can help me figure this mess out I’ll dance at your wedding! Here is data on what it is exactly that I am trying to do and the steps I’ve taken so far. This post may be rather wordy however I want to get as much info as possible to anyone who might be able to help. I’m a techie type, understand hardware, build my own computers but this DVD thing has me completely flummoxed. Have researched DVD burning specs on the net so know just enough to be dangerous.

The movie I am burning is Panorama Ephemera saved from the archive as MPEG2. MPEG2 file is 4.2Gig. I’ve savet tons of MP2 files from archive and played them back as files however I have never before burned a DVD. As I said, newbie here to this.

I downloaded the latest updates from Nero today before trying to burn. I re-booted computer for fresh system load before trying to use Nero. The raw DVD disk is TDK DVD-R, X2 speed. I verified that write speed was tested and was set to burn at X2.

Nero Vision Express 3 goes through all the correct motions, converts the MPEG2 file to DVD format and begins the burning process just fine. It takes about an hour to render the file and about another hour to write the DVD. As the DVD writes Nero displays frames from the film in a smallish window so I can see that the movie is being saved to disk.

Nero gets ALMOST to the bitter end (about where I’d think the program should “close the session”) and fails giving the error message “DVDengine failed”. GRRRRRR! And with only seconds remaining to finish too!

Here’s the scoop. I can PLAY the DVD back using Nero media viewer (with some artifacts in lower potion of picture) however my regular home DVD player fails to read the disk. Home DVD player plays other MINUS R media so compatibility issues with –R media ruled out. Windows explorer fails to even see this disk so I can’t verify on my PC that all the proper directories and .VOB, .IFO, .BUP files are intact. The disk plays all the way to the end of the credits on Nero viewer so the entire movie is on the disk. Audio is intact and plays fine in Nero.

My computer info just in case it helps:
Win XP without service pack 2 (SP2 killed my machine and I had to reformat and start again). 3.0Gig Intel P4, 800Mhz frontside bus, 512Meg PC3200 RAM, Soyo Dragon 2 Platinum motherboard, 74Gig 10Krpm Raptor serialATA drive, divided into 2 NTSF partitions. SONY DVD model DW-U18A DVD+/-R, RW burner 4X max write speed, single layer, ATI All-In-Wonder 128 Pro AGP 4 graphics card. I have about 80% of my total C:/D: drives free for data so I have plenty of blank disk room.


First here is the point of error copied from a rather longish .log file that Nero created. The entire .log file is included as a .TXT file attachment.

I had the same problem and I solved it doing 4 thinhgs, soory that a I didn't do them one at a time to pinpiont better.

1.- uninstall patin couffin driver.
2.- defrag NERO temp driver.
3.- Install Sun Java runtime.
4.- Burn DVD with 2X.

I believe that it is a mix of 1 & 2

Hope it works for you guys......

Best regards and luck.....I'd been dealing with this &&%"·"=&&)&%$$ for 2 weeks..........

Sounds like you are hot on the trail! When I get those Nero error textlog messages they could just as well say something like "6:22 burning process started...6:24 you just burned a coaster, dude!...6:25 get another disk and try it again!" In other words, it's just bloatwares attempt to dignify itself. Maybe if you ask Ahead software they could make sense of it.
In reading through, a single 4.2G file is a pretty large file to stream uninterupted to a drive, What I would try is trial ware of TMPGEnc and use the use the "source range" to extract about a third of it, maybe a gig or two, and see if that burns.. Oh also when you are making the disk, you might want to make sure you enable the autoplay (automation) at the end of the menu creator. Some DVD machines will just sit there unless you create an instruction to play without having to use the remote. My VCDs were useless until I set that up so it would play the first file in a few seconds and bypass the "menu" which doesn't work anyway.
Good Luck!
